I felt like doing a super dark eye, which I didn’t execute as well as I would have liked, but it’s just something so dramatic and fun, I couldn’t resist not taking photos!

I used Blacktrack fluidline all over lid, Carbon eyeshadow all over lid, Vex eyeshadow above crease and on brow, Feline kohl power on lower lash line, and Pink Opal pigment on lower lash line. I wore Don’t Be Shy blush with Sculpt sculpting powder to contour and Micro Pink beauty powder to highlight. I had Strawberry Blonde lipstick with Lull lipglass.

    Love the Catwoman snarl at the end! Too cute!

    ooo, you look so cool. you’re like from a matrix movie. that pink opal pigment makes a difference even just at the lower lash line. kind of makes it a nice feminine smokey eye instead of the basic black and white bold strong smokey eye.

    • Thank you! Haha! Yes, it’s amazing what a little whitish coloring can do to the look. Sometimes I use Shell CCB, which is pretty silvery white, and it’s nice, too.

  3. Márcia

    You are so beautiful with this dramatic look.
    Well done Christine!

  4. Gorgeous, both the makeup and you!

    Hi Christine! I notice you use the Sculpt and Shape all the time. What is this for? I looked it up on the MAC website to understand what it does and can’t quite get it. Where on your face do you use it? Maybe I should check it out. Thanks!

    • Hey Shefali! They’re to contour the face – I use it to contour my cheeks and make them stand out a bit more :) There’s a tutorial on how to use them in the Tutorial – Face section!

  20. Beda

    I love smokey eyes. The possibilities are endless. I looks great on you. MAC´s Carbon e/s it´s one of the best in the market.

    You look Rock-n-Roll Gorgeous! =D

  21. Camilla

    beautiful!! i love all kinds of smokey eye but i never can find a really good black eye shadow … i got a few some more expensive some less and they all look bad on the eyelid i mean they are like kinda transparent and i cant use them too much cause then you know how it looks … anyway very beautiful make up, good job like always!!!

  22. JackA

    Love the last pic of you. Fierceness.

    This is definently a look to try out for a night on the town.

  23. black/grey looks and pink looks (like in the look before this one) really work great for you

  24. Gina

    can you recommend colors similar to don’t be shy, strawberry blonde, and lull that are a part of the permanent line/would work on darker skin like nc 35-37? I really like this look and would like to try and recreate it!

    • Well Dressed is similar to Don’t Be Shy. N3 from N is close to Strawberry Blonde, and Sweetie is similar, though a bit cooler. Lull, well, I can’t really think of a dupe for :(

  25. I think it was executed quite well Christine! And love the last photo, you silly girl you!!

  26. I really loved your smoked eyes! I´ll try to copy it =) I mean the whole look is beautiful, congrats! =)

  27. Stephanie

  29. BaDKiTTy

    So HOT!!! Love this Look!

  30. Bella

    You are gorgeous? What is your ethnicity? Filipino…mixed with something Latin?? Just fyi…I am :) What kind of brush do you use to put eyeshadown on the lower eyelash area?

  31. bec

    pure SEX!!
    do you think a fair skinned girl like me (with cool undertones) could pull this look off?

  32. Tonee

    Love the smoky eye – especially the light pinkish/purple effect of Vex on the brow and that lipstick looks great on you :)

  33. HUN U L00K S000 **FiERCE** iN UR LAST PIC HEHE. S0 AD0RABLE. iM S0 HAPPY KUZ i HAVE THE FLUIDLINE. BUT NOT THE VEX =( BUT iT’Z OK!! i HAVE A QUAD FR0M MiLANi THAT’S ALMOST THAT COLOR. S0 i CAN CREATE THAT SAME L00K WiTH LiTTLE DiFFERENCE!! YAY!! THANX TEMPTALiA!!

  34. I’M SO IN LOVE. IT’S VERY SULTRY…. TUTORIAL PLEEEEEEASE!!

  35. Ross1977

    Oh my god, This look is gorgeous and you look so beautyful!!!
    I love the smoky eye!

  36. Best look ever!!! :-o i´m in love with it!! I´ll try to do the same look but i will use existencial paint with dark sould pigment and softwash grey piggie.

    I love the lips, are Strawberry Blonde lipstick and Lull lipglass available right now? If they aren´t, which colours could replace them?

    Thanks in advance

    • Thank you, Virginia!! I think it’ll turn out great with the products you listed!

      They were both limited edition, so I doubt either are available (especially Strawberry Blonde). I would suggest Sweetie lipstick as a permanent color (though Strawberry Blonde is a warmer, brighter medium pink) with Decorative lustreglass. Lull is still available on the US MAC site, though.

  37. sara

    strawberry blonde is similar to n3? now im even MORE EXCITED to get it lol! it’s coming tomorrroowwww the anticipation is killing me!!!

  38. addicted_2color

    very cute.

  39. The Pink Opal pigment on your lower lashline adds just enough glam to this dark look. Great job!!

  40. ilovecheese

    You look gorgeous, your eyes look amazing!!!! I feel this is one of your best looks!

  41. This is my favourite look of yours ever, I really love it! The colours are beautiful.

  42. Laura

    i love the way this has a hint of pink… how would you use the pink opal pigment for a daytime look?

  43. emw

    i tried these smoky eyes with hue lipstick and tenderling blusher … cant seem to find the dont be shy blush anywhere … tenderling is so nice with this look doe its nice or subtle … or even lillicent creme blush for a softer look.any other options for lips and cheeks for dis look????

  44. emw

    or underage lipglass mite be nice with it … hmmmm.

  45. Tinneke

    Really waw!!!

  46. Lisa Kowalyk

    Wow! That’s so hot! I do a similar look with Beauty Marked eyeshadow, but I like this one way more. Gorgeous!

  47. ann

  55. Melissa M

    just wondering what brush you use to get the fluidline to apply evenly all over your lid?

  56. I like this makeup, it’s really a good look for holidays. I’m blonde and I usually try to use dark colors when I have special occasions.
